Description

RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application claims priority to U.S. Patent Application Ser. No. 62/310,467 titled “Collapsible Strength Exercise Machine” and filed on Mar. 18, 2016, which application is herein incorporated by reference for all that it discloses.

BACKGROUND

While there are numerous exercise activities that one may participate in, exercise may be broadly broken into the categories of aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise generally refers to activities that substantially increase the heart rate and respiration of the exerciser for an extended period of time. This type of exercise is generally directed to enhancing cardiovascular performance. Such exercise usually includes low or moderate resistance to the movement of the individual. For example, aerobic exercise includes activities such as walking, running, jogging, swimming or bicycling for extended distances and extended periods of time.

Anaerobic exercise generally refers to exercise that strengthens skeletal muscles and usually involves the flexing or contraction of targeted muscles through significant exertion during a relatively short period of time and/or through a relatively small number of repetitions. For example, anaerobic exercise includes activities such as weight training, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, or a series of short sprints.

To build skeletal muscle, a muscle group is contracted against resistance. The contraction of some muscle groups produces a pushing motion, while the contraction of other muscle groups produces a pulling motion. A cable machine is a popular piece of exercise equipment for building those muscle groups that produce pulling motions. A cable machine often includes a cable with a handle connected to a first end and a resistance mechanism connected to a second end. Generally, the resistance mechanism is a selectable set of weights. A midsection of the cable is supported with at least one pulley. To move the cable, a user pulls on the handle with a force sufficient to overcome the force of the resistance mechanism. As the cable moves, the pulley or pulleys direct the movement of the cable and carry a portion of the resistance mechanism's load.

One type of cable exercise machine is disclosed in WIPO Patent Publication No. WO/2007/015096 issued to Andrew Loach. In this reference, an exercise apparatus allows the user to perform a variety of aerobic and strength training exercises. A user input means allows the user to apply torque to an input shaft of a resistance unit. A control means adjusts the resistance provided by a resistance means coupled to the input shaft according to the output of a number of sensors. In a preferred embodiment, the resistance unit is able to simulate at the input shaft the dynamic response of a damped flywheel or the dynamic response of an object driven through a viscous medium, or to maintain the resistance at a constant level that is set by the user. The resistance unit includes a battery or an electric generator device and can be operated without connection to an external power source. Other types of cable exercise machines are described in U.S. Patent Publication Nos. 2012/0065034 issued to Andrew Loach and 2006/0148622 issued to Ping Chen.

FIG. 1 depicts an example of an exercise machine 100. In this example, the exercise machine 100 includes a standing platform 102 connected to an upright structure 104 at a pivot connection 106.

The upright structure includes a first arm assembly 108 and a second arm assembly 110. In this example, each of the arm assemblies 108, 110 include an arm 112, a distal end 114, and a distal pulley 116 connected to the distal end 114. Further, in this example, each of the first and second arm assemblies 108, 110 include a proximal end 118, a pin opening 120 defined proximate the proximal end 118, a retracted pin 122 partially disposed within the pin opening 120, a proximal axle connected to the proximal end 118, and a locking plate 126 with multiple locking openings 128 defined therein. The arm 112 can be pivoted about the proximal axle and lockable in an angular position that corresponds to one of the multiple locking openings 128.

The arm 112 supports a movable cable 130. A distal end 132 of the cable 130 is connected to a handle 134. The exercise machine 100 may also include a resistance mechanism (not shown) and a proximal end (not shown) of the cable 130 is attached to the resistance mechanism. A proximal pulley is located near the proximal end 118 of the arm 112, and the cable 130 is directed with the proximal pulley and the distal pulley 116. Thus, when the user pulls the handle 134, the cable moves along its length. As the cable moves along its length, the cable is routed by the proximal and distal pulleys so that the resistance mechanism is moved by the movement of the cable's proximal end. Thus, the user feels the resistance load of the resistance mechanism as he or she pulls on the cable's handle.

In the example of FIG. 1, the standing platform's rails 138 are joined at the pivot connection 106 with a tube 140. A pivot rod may be inserted through the inside diameter of the tube 140. The pivot rod is longer than the length of the tube 140 and extends out of the tube 140 at both of the tube's ends. The bottom of the upright structure's beams 142 also include tubular sections 144 that have openings defined therein, but are transverse the length of the beams 142. The beams' tubular sections 144 complement the platform's tube 140 to form a collective tube in which the pivot rod resides. The pivot rod connects the upright structure 104 and the standing platform 102 through collective tube. The interface between the platform's tube 140 and the beams' tube sections 144 can include preset features, such as anti-rotation features. In one example, the face of the platform's tube includes a recess, and the complementing face of the corresponding tube section includes a protrusion sized to snugly fit within the recess. Thus, when the recess of the tube's face is lined up with the protrusion in the tube section's face, the protrusion and recess interlock preventing the beam from rotating with respect to the standing platform.

The pivot connection 106 may include a knob 146 at one end that is threaded onto a thread form of the pivot rod. The knob 146 may be accessible to the outside collective tube, and when the knob 146 is rotated in a first direction, the interfaces between the tube and tube sections come closer together. In a tightened position, the knob 146 applies a force strong enough to hold the tube 140 close to the tube sections 144 which forcibly causes the anti-rotation features of the tube 140 and tube sections 144 to interlock. When the knob 146 is rotated in a second direction that is opposite the first direction, the force between the tube 140 and the tube sections 144 is reduced. When the knob 146 is rotated far enough in the second direction, the beam's tube sections 144 can be separated from the platform's tube 140 enough that the anti-rotation features can unlock allowing the beams 142 to pivot about the pivot rod. Thus, with the knob 146 loosened enough, the upright structure 104 can rotate into a new position with respect to the standing platform 102.

FIG. 2 depicts an example of an exercise machine 200. In this example, the exercise machine 200 includes a first arm assembly 202 and a second arm assembly 204. In FIG. 2, the first arm assembly 202 is rotated and locked into a downward angular orientation 206 so that the length of the arm is aligned with the length of the upright structure 208. The first arm assembly 202 may be rotated into the aligned orientation 206 when the exercise machine 200 is in an operational mode.

The second arm assembly 204 is rotated and locked into another angular orientation 210 that positions the handle 212 of the cable 214 in a location desired by a user for performing a pull exercise. The second arm assembly 204 may be rotated into any orientation, especially orientations that are transverse the orientation of the upright structure or are at least misaligned with the orientation of the upright structure.

FIG. 3 depicts a cross sectional view of a portion of an exercise machine 300. In this example, the arm assembly 302 include an arm 304 with a proximal end 306 and a distal end 308. The proximal pulley 310 is associated with the proximal end 306 of the arm 304, and a pair of distal pulleys 312 is associated with the arm's distal end 308. A passage 314 is defined in the arm 304 and connects the proximal end 306 and the distal end 308 along the arm's length. The cable 316 is routed within the arm's length and is directed by the proximal pulley 310 and the pair of distal pulleys 312. A handle 318 and a stopper 320 is secured at the cable's distal end. A gap between the pair of distal pulleys 312 is smaller than the cross sectional thickness of the stopper 320. Thus, the stopper 320 prevents the handle 318 and/or the proximal end 306 from being pulled into the passage 314.

FIG. 4 depicts an example of an exercise machine 400. In this example, the exercise machine 400 includes a standing platform 402 on which the user stands during the performance of a pull exercise. The user stands on the standing platform 402 while grasping the handle 404 connected to the cable and pulling on the handle 404. The user's own body weight assists in stabilizing the exercise machine 400 during the exercise. Thus, the user's feet remain stationary with respect to the standing platform during the performance of the pull exercise. Further, the standing platform 402 remains stationary during the performance of the pull exercise.

When the user is not executing a pull exercise while standing on the standing platform 402, the standing platform 402 may be adjusted to the user's arm length, height, preferences, or combinations thereof. In the example of FIG. 4, the standing platform 402 includes a rail 406 and a floor section 408 connected to the rail 406. The floor section 408 may slide along the rail 406. A locking mechanism 410 may be incorporated into the floor section 408 and may be used to selectively lock the floor section 408 in place along the length of the rail 406. In the example of FIG. 4, the rail 406 is a substantially straight rail.

FIG. 5 depicts an example of an exercise machine 500. In this example, the arm 502 is supported about a proximal axle 504 connected to the arm's proximal end 506 and the arm 502 is capable of rotating about the proximal axle 504. A locking plate 508 is attached to the upright structure 510, and the locking plate 508 include multiple locking openings 512 adjacent the plate's perimeter 514. The arm includes a pin opening 516 that can align with any one of the multiple locking openings 512 of the plate 508 depending on the angular orientation of the arm 502. When a pin 518 is inserted through both one of the locking openings of the plate 508 and the pin opening 516 of the arm 502, the arm 502 is locked in the angular orientation. As the user desires to change the arm's orientation, the pin can be removed to free the arm 502 to rotate about the proximal axle 504. When the arm 502 is lined up to the desired orientation, the pin 518 can be reinserted so that the arm 502 is angularly locked with the plate 508.

FIG. 6 depicts an example of the exercise machine 600 in an operational mode. In this example, the upright structure 602 is orientated in a transverse orientation to the standing platform 604. The cable is routed from the arm assemblies 606 down along the upright structure's length. Near the pivot connection, the cable is routed by a pulley 608. In this situation, the pulley 608 directs the cable underneath the floor section 610. In this example, the resistance mechanism may be incorporated into the standing platform. In one type of example, the resistance mechanism includes a flywheel and a magnetic unit that resists the rotations of the flywheel where both the flywheel and the magnetic unit are incorporated into the standing platform. But, in alternative examples, the resistance mechanism may be located in the upright structure. The resistance mechanism may include, at least in part, the elastic resistance of the cable.

FIG. 7 depicts an example of the exercise machine 700 in an operational mode. In this example, the upright structure 702 is orientated in a transverse orientation to the standing platform 704. In this mode, the user can stand on the standing platform 704 and orient the arm assemblies so that the arm assemblies position the cable end's handles within a convenient arm's reach to execute a pull exercise while the user is standing on the standing platform 704.

FIG. 8 depicts an example of the exercise machine 800 in storage mode. In this example, the upright structure 802 is orientated in an aligned orientation to the standing platform 804. In this mode, the arm assemblies are oriented to be aligned with the upright structure 802, and the upright structure 802 is folded down to be aligned with the standing platform 804. As shown in FIG. 8, the upright structure 802 may include a bend.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

In general, the invention disclosed herein may provide users with a collapsible exercise machine. The exercise machine may be a strength exercise machine that includes a pulley cable attached to a resistance mechanism. The user can pull the pull cable against the resistance of the resistance mechanism to build muscle.

In one example, the exercise machine includes a standing platform that is pivotally connected to an upright structure. The upright structure may include an arm assembly that includes at least one arm that supports and directs a pull cable. The pull cable is connected to a resistance mechanism that is attached to another portion of the exercise machine. The user may stand on the standing platform while pulling the distal end of the pull cable. In this manner, the user's body weight can provide stability to the exercise machine as the user pulls against the resistance mechanism's load.

The standing platform may be pivotally connected to the upright structure so that the upright structure can be in an upright orientation that is traverse the length of the standing platform when the exercise machine is in an operational mode. The user can perform an intended exercise while standing on the standing platform when the exercise machine is in the operational mode. The upright structure can rotate about the pivot connection so that the upright structure can rotate downward over the standing platform and be in an aligned orientation with the standing platform when the exercise machine is in a storage mode. In the storage mode, the exercise machine is compact to take up less space. For example, according to one embodiment, the final folded height of the exercise machine in the storage mode is 6 inches or less, measured from the floor, tangentially, to the top of the upright structure 802. In additional embodiments, the final folded height of the exercise machine in the storage mode is 4 inches or less. In some examples, a set of wheels is attached to a standing platform so that one end of the compacted exercise machine can be wheel to another location for storage. This may occur when the user lifts up another end of the exercise machine, and the weight of the exercise machine is loaded into the support floor at the wheels thereby reducing friction against the floor. In other examples, an end of the standing platform may include a low friction interface with the floor so that the user can more easily move the exercise machine in storage mode.

The pivot connection may include a pivot rod that is attached to both the upright structure and the standing platform. A frame of the upright structure may include a first beam on a first side of the upright structure and a second beam on a second side of the upright structure. Each of the first beam and the second beam may include a pivot opening defined in the beams near a connection end of the beams to receive the pivot rod. Similarly, the standing platform may include a first rail on a first side of the platform and a second rail on a second side of the platform. Each of the first rail and the second rail may include pivot openings defined in the rails near a connection end of the rails to receive the pivot rod. The upright structure may pivot about the pivot rod when both the upright structure and the standing platform are connected to the pivot rod.

In some cases, the upright structure may lock in a preset operational angular position about the pivot rod in the operational mode. Locking into an operational angular position may appropriately orient the upright structure during the performance of the user's exercise. Also, locking into an operational angular position may also prevent the upright structure from rotating about the pivot rod when the user pulls on the pull cable during the performance of the exercise thereby preventing the exercise machine from collapsing while the machine is in use.

The preset operational angular position may include anti-rotation features incorporated into the upright structure and the standing platform. In one example, the platform's rails are joined at the pivot connection with the tube. The pivot rod may be inserted through the inside diameter of the tube. In some cases, the pivot rod is longer than the length of the tube and extends out of the tube at both of the tube's ends. The bottom of the upright structure's beams may also include tubular sections that include openings defined therein, but are transverse the length of the beams. The beams' tubular sections may complement the platform's tube to form a collective tube in which the pivot rod can reside. In this example, the pivot rod connects the upright structure and the standing platform through the collective tube. The interface between the platform's tube and the beams' tube sections may include preset features, such as anti-rotation features. In one example, the face of the platform's tube includes a recess, and the complementing face of the corresponding tube section includes a protrusion sized to snugly fit within the recess. Thus, when the recess of the tube's face is lined up with the protrusion in the tube section's face, the protrusion and recess interlock preventing the beam from rotating with respect to the standing platform.

The pivot rod may include a knob at one end that is threaded onto a thread form of the pivot rod. The knob may be accessible to the outside of the collective tube and when the knob is rotated in a first direction, the interfaces between the tube and tube sections come closer together. In a tightened position, the knob applies a force strong enough to hold the tube close to the tube sections which forcibly causes the anti-rotation features of the tube and tube sections to interlock. When the knob is rotated in a second direction that is opposite the first direction, the force between the tube and the tube sections is reduced. When the knob is rotated far enough in the second direction, the beam's tube sections can be separated from the platform's tube enough that the anti-rotation features can unlock allowing the beams to pivot about the pivot rod with respect to the platform's tube. Thus, with the knob loosened enough, the upright structure can rotate into a new position with respect to the standing platform.

Further, in some examples, the upright structure may lock into a preset storage angular position in the storage mode. This angular locking mechanism may include any appropriate type of locking mechanism. In one example, the angular locking mechanism includes a retractable pin incorporated into either of the upright structure or the standing platform that can be inserted into the other. Locking into an angular storage position may prevent the upright structure from unintentional rotating about the pivot rod when the exercise machine is in the storage position, especially in those circumstances when the exercise machine is leaned up against a wall or other structure during storage.

While the pivot connection above has been described with reference to a specific type of pivot connection that includes a pivot rod, any appropriate type of pivot connection may be used in accordance with the principles described in the present disclosure. For example, a non-exhaustive list of movable features that may be incorporated into the pivot connection include a hinge joint, a ball and socket joint, a rotary actuator, a gear mechanism, a screw mechanism, a condyloid joint, a saddle joint, another type of joint, or combinations thereof.

Further, while the examples above have been described with the standing platform including multiple rails, any number of rails or other types of frame members may be used to connect to the pivot connection. Also, while the examples above have been described with an upright structure that has multiple beams, any number of beams or other types of frame members may be used to connect to the pivot connection.

In some embodiments, the standing platform may include a floor section that is connected to the rails or another type of frame member. In some cases, the floor section is movable along the length of the rails. For example, the underside of the floor section may include a feature that interlocks with a track defined in the rails. Thus, the floor section may be confined to travel along the length of the rails.

A locking mechanism may also be incorporated into the floor section to lock the floor section at a distance along the rails with respect to the upright structure and prevent the floor section from moving during the performance of the exercise.

At least one of the rails may include an opening, a catch, a recess, or another type of feature that can interlock with a locking feature of the floor section. For example, the floor section's locking feature may include a retractable pin that can interlock with the rails at the preset locations of the rails. In these examples, the user can move the floor section to the preset locations can lock the floor section in place. In other examples, the locking feature can lock the position the floor section at any desirable location along the length of the rails. In one type of example, the locking mechanism includes a brake that can apply a compressive force to any location along the length of the rails. In other examples, the floor section is moved along the rails with a mechanism that involves a gear set, and the locking mechanism causes the gear set to be locked into place.

The movable floor section allows the user to adjust the distance that the user is from the upright structure during the performance of a pulling and/or pushing exercise. The distance away that the user is from the upright structure may affect the angle at which the user pulls the cable which can affect the muscles targeted during the pull exercise. Thus, the user can adjust the floor section's location to target specific muscles and/or muscle groups. Further, some users may have different arm lengths and/or preferences that affect how far away the user is during the exercise. Thus, an adjustable floor section provides the user with an ability to make adjustments while still using the user's body weight to provide stability to the exercise machine when performing the exercise. In some alternative embodiments, the floor section is stationary with the respect to the rails and cannot move along the rails' length.

While the examples above have been described with reference to specific features of the standing platform and the locking mechanism of the standing platform, any appropriate features may be used to lock the floor section in place, move floor section along the rails' length, or to form the floor section in accordance with the principles described in the present disclosure.

The upright structure may include at least one arm assembly. In some embodiments, the upright structure includes a first arm assembly on a first side of the upright structure and a second arm assembly on a second side of the upright structure. Each of the arm assemblies may include an arm, a distal end of the arm, and a pulley connected to the distal end of the arm.

In some examples, the arm assembly also includes a proximal end of the arm and a proximal axle connected to the proximal end. The axle may be aligned in the direction of the standing platform's rails or another direction that is traverse the vertical orientation of the upright structure. The arms may be pivoted about the proximal axis so that the arms can change the position of the distal pulley with respect to the location of the user. For example, the arms can rotate so that the arms can extend away from the upright structure when the exercise machine is in the operational mode. Also, the arms may rotate downwards so that the arms are aligned with the vertical orientation of the upright structure in the storage mode.

In an example where the upright structure includes a first arm and a second arm on the first and second sides of the upright structure, at least one of the aims may form any appropriate angle between zero and 180 degrees with respect to the upright structure from the view of a user standing on the standing platform. In this example, the arm may rotate downward into the upright structure and be aligned with the upright structure at a zero degree angle or another small angle. The arm may be rotated outward to form a 45 degree angle, a 90 degree angle, or a 135 degree angle with the respect to the upright structure or any angle therein between. In another example, the arm may be rotated upward so that the arm is aligned with the upright structure, but positioned away from the upright structure. At each of these angles, the arms may be preset to lock into place. In another example, the arms can lock into place at any appropriate angle without a preset feature. In this type of example, the arm assembly may include a mechanism that applies a magnetic force, a compressive force, or another type of force that locks the arm into place.

In one example where the arm can be rotated into preset positions, the arm assembly includes a plate that is adjacent to the proximal end of the arm. Multiple locking openings are defined in the plate around the plate's circumference. The proximal end of the arm may include a pin opening defined therein. A retractable pin may reside in the pin opening and may be spring loaded to insert into one of the multiple locking openings of the plate.

In some cases, the arms in each of the first arm assembly and the second arm assembly are movable independently of each other. In an alternative embodiment, the upright structure includes a single arm that can rotate about a larger range that a 180 degrees. In such an example, the user can use a single arm to work out both of his or her arms from different sides of the exercise machine at different times. In examples where the exercise machine includes two arms on different sides of the upright structure, the user can work out both of his or her arms simultaneously.

The proximal end of the arm may also include a proximal pulley. In some examples, a channel is defined in the arm from the location of the proximal pulley to the distal pulley. The cable may include a section that resides in the channel.

The cable may have an end that is attached to a resistance mechanism. From the resistance mechanism, the cable may be directed by a group of pulleys to distribute the resistance mechanism's loads. At the proximal end of the arm, the proximal pulley can provide a fulcrum that changes the cable's direction into the channel. At the distal end of the arm, the distal pulley can provide a fulcrum that also changes the direction of the cable. The distal end of the cable may include a handle that the user can grasp during the performance of strength exercises. The distal pulley may include a swivel that allows the distal pulley's body to rotate in an additional degree of freedom and allows the user to pull the cable from different angles.

The handle may be any appropriate type of connector for allowing the user to grasp the end of the cable. In some examples, at least one of the handles includes a loop. The loop may be made of a metal, a rope, a strap, or another type of material. The handle may be a replaceable handle so that the user can change the type of grip or move the handle to a different one of the handle connectors.

The exercise machine may use any appropriate type of resistance mechanism to resist the axial movement along the cable's length as the user performs dynamic pulls or pushes during the performance of the exercise. In one example, the resistance mechanism may include a flywheel. The flywheel may be located in any appropriate location of the exercise machine. In one example, the flywheel is located underneath the standing platform. In another example, the flywheel is located in the upright structure. The pulleys may orient the direction of the cable at different points along the cable's length to direct the resistance load from the resistance mechanism's location to the cable's distal end.

The flywheel may be incorporated into a magnetic resistance mechanism that applies a load of resistance to the movement of the pull cable. The level of resistance applied by the magnetic resistance mechanism may be controlled electronically. For example, an electrical input into an electromagnetic unit may produce an output of resistance that can resist the forces exerted by the user through the cable. In other examples, the distance between a magnetic unit and the flywheel can be changed so that the amount of magnetic resistance on the flywheel changes. For example, as the magnetic unit is applying a consistent a magnetic flux to the flywheel and is moved away from the flywheel, the magnetic resistance felt by the flywheel is reduced. Conversely, as the magnetic unit is moved towards the flywheel, the magnetic resistance felt at the flywheel increases. The inputs or outputs of these and other types of adjustable resistance mechanisms can be tracked and stored. As the flywheel rotates, the sensor may track the rotation of the flywheel. In some embodiments, the sensor causes a counter to be incremented up one for each rotation of the flywheel. In other embodiments, the sensor can track partial revolutions of the flywheel.

In some cases, the amount of resistance is tracked. The amount of resistance can be determined by the position of the magnetic unit and it's the magnetic field strength. As changes to the field strength and/or the distance from the flywheel occur, the resistance level changes. Thus, the exercise machine may recognize the changes in the tracked resistance level when these parameters change. The tracked level of resistance can be sent to a calorie tracker to determine the amount of calories burned by the user. Also, a sensor that tracks the position of the flywheel can also send position information to the calorie tracker as an input. The calorie tracker can determine the amount of calories burned during each pull and/or collectively during the course of the entire workout based on the inputs about the flywheel's position and the resistance level experienced by the flywheel.

In some examples, a single flywheel resists the movement of multiple resistance cables. But, in other examples, the exercise machine uses a single cable and the flywheel resists just the movement of a single cable.

In some examples where a single flywheel is used to resist the movement of multiple cables, the flywheel can be attached to a central shaft with multiple spools coaxially mounted around the central shaft. The spools can contain attachments to at least one of the cables. As one of the pull cables is moved in a first direction, the spools are rotated in a first direction. The torque generated by rotating the spools is transferred to the flywheel, and the flywheel rotates in the first direction with the spools. But, when the pull cable is returned, the force that caused the spools to rotated in the first direction ceases. At least one return mechanism is connected to the flywheel that, in the absence of the force imposed on the pull cable, causes the spools to rotate back in the opposite direction to their original orientation before the pull cable force was imposed. But, the arrangement between the flywheel, shaft, and spools does not transfer the torque generated in the second direction to the flywheel.

Thus, in this example, the flywheel rotates in a single direction regardless of the direction that the pull cable is moving. Further, in this example, the flywheel is just rotating when a pull force is exerted by the user, thus the position of the flywheel represents just the work done as part of the workout. In other words, the return movement of the cable does not affect the calorie count. Further, the calorie counting calculations of the cable exercise machine are simplified because the sensor is insulated from at least the return forces that may skew the calorie counting calculations. Consequently, the tracked calories represents just those calories that are consumed during the course of the workout.

The flywheel may be constructed of multiple parts. For example, the flywheel may include a magnetically conductive rim. In other embodiments, the flywheel includes another type of magnetically conductive component that interacts with the magnetic flux imparted by the arm. As the magnetic flux increases, more energy is used to rotate the flywheel. Thus, a user must impart a greater amount of energy as he or she pulls on the pull cable to rotate the flywheel. As a result of the increased resistance, the user will consume more calories. Likewise, as the magnetic flux decreases, less energy is used to rotate the flywheel. Thus, a user can impart a lower amount of energy as he or she pulls on the pull cable to rotate the flywheel.

While this example has been described with specific reference to an arm producing a magnetic flux that pivots to and away from the flywheel to achieve a desired amount of resistance to the rotation of the flywheel, any appropriate mechanism for applying a resistance to the rotation of the flywheel may be used in accordance with the principles described herein. For example, the arm may remain at a fixed distance from the flywheel. In this example, the magnetic flux may be altered by providing a greater electrical input to achieve a greater magnetic output. Further, in lieu of pivoting the arm to and away from the flywheel, a magnetic unit may be moved towards or away from the flywheel with a linear actuator or another type of actuator.

The cable exercise machine may further includes a control panel which may be incorporated into the upright structure or some other convenient location. The control panel may include various input devices (e.g., buttons, switches or dials) and output devices (e.g., LED lights, displays, alarms). The control panel may further include connections for communication with other devices. These input devices may be used to instruct the flywheel assembly to change a level of magnetic resistance, track calories, set a timer, play music, play an audiovisual program, provide other forms of entertainment, execute a pre-programmed workout, perform another type of task, or combinations thereof. A display can indicate the feedback to the user about his or her performance, the resistance level at which the resistance mechanism is set, the number of calories consumed during the workout, other types of information, or combinations thereof.

While this example has been described with specific reference to the flywheel rotating in just a single direction, in other examples, the flywheel rotates in multiple directions. Further, while this example has been described with reference to a specific arrangement of cables and pulleys, these components of the cable exercise machine may be arranged in other configurations.

A sensor tracks the rotational position of the flywheel. As the flywheel rotates from the movement of the pull cables, the sensor can track the revolutions that the flywheel rotates. In some examples, the sensor may track half revolutions, quarter revolutions, other fractional revolutions, or combinations thereof.

The sensor may be any appropriate type of sensor that can determine the rotational position of the flywheel. Further, the sensor may determine the flywheel's position based on features incorporated into the flywheel body, the magnetically conductive rim, or the central shaft of the flywheel. For example, the sensor may be a mechanical rotary sensor, an optical rotary sensor, a magnetic rotary sensor, a capacitive rotary sensor, a geared multi-turn sensor, an incremental rotary sensor, another type of sensor, or combinations thereof. In some examples, a visual code may be depicted on the flywheel body, and the sensor may read the orientation of the visual code to determine the number of revolutions or partial revolutions. In other examples, the flywheel body includes at least one feature that is counted as the features rotate with the flywheel body. In some examples, a feature is a magnetic feature, a recess, a protrusion, an optical feature, another type of feature, or combinations thereof.

The sensor can feed the number of revolutions and/or partial revolutions to a processor as an input. The processor can also receive as an input the level of resistance that was applied to the flywheel when the revolutions occurred. As a result, the processor can cause the amount of energy or number of calories consumed to be determined. In some examples, other information, other than just the calorie count, is determined using the revolution count. For example, the processor may also determine the expected remaining life of the cable exercise machine based on use. The expected remaining life may be based, at least in part, on the number of flywheel revolutions. Further, the processor may also use the revolution count to track when maintenance should occur on the machine, and send a message to the user indicating that maintenance should be performed on the machine based on usage.

In some examples, the sensor is accompanied with an accelerometer. The combination of the inputs from the accelerometer and the sensor can at least aid the processor is determining the force exerted by the user during each pull. The processor may also track the force per pull, the average force over the course of the workout, the trends of force over the course of the workout, and so forth. For example, the processor may cause a graph of force per pull to be displayed to the user. In this type of graph, the amount of force exerted by the user at the beginning of the workout verses the end of the workout may be depicted. This information may be useful to the user and/or a trainer in customizing a workout for the user.

The number of calories per pull may be presented to the user in a display of the cable exercise machine. In some examples, the calories for an entire workout are tracked and presented to the user. In some examples, the calorie count is presented to the user through the display, through an audible mechanism, through a tactile mechanism, through another type of sensory mechanism, or combinations thereof.
